Working Whole Systems offers a radical way of thinking about organisations as living systems. It provides practical methods for engaging with complex social and organisational issues that are applicable to any group wanting a new way to work. The book draws directly on the authors' experience in health agencies, housing, transport, local government, police and voluntary agencies. This second edition contains new research on the criminal justice system, services for children and young people and services for people with mental health problems.
